Introduction

The 'unstately' estate. One of the most charming and beautiful wedding venues in the British isles!

Voted as one of the best places, in the UK, to get married; The Riding School, at Calke Abbey, was built with love and it continues in that tradition today. The Award Winning Riding School is a charming 18th century building that contains many original and quirky features including massive oak beams, a viewing gallery, a rowing boat and ancient paint work. Licensed to hold civil ceremonies and partnerships, it really is a fabulous place in which to cement and celebrate your union with a twist of rustic chic.
